The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum by Alfred Stieglitz( Book )

9 editions published in 1997 in English and German and held by 1,308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986), a pioneer of modernism, was unlike most of her contemporaries in that all her training and much of her subject matter were purely American. Still vigorously productive in her nineties, O'Keeffe always responded to the new in her own unique fashion. In this volume, eighty-six works from every period of her life, many never before published, are reproduced in large scale and in full color. Several are shown in lavish gatefolds." "More than a dozen photographs of the artist, including a number taken by Alfred Stieglitz, document the various stages of her life. A bibliography and full index add to the scholarly value of this handsome volume."--Jacket
Claes Oldenburg by Barbara Rose( Book )

35 editions published between 1969 and 1976 in 3 languages and held by 1,165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Catalogue of the exhibition: The works are grouped in categories according to their themes, which succeed one another in roughly chronological order; however, the various categories tend to overlap somewhat in date. Within each group, the arrangement is in order of the making of each piece, according to information supplied by the artist, who has also advised on the titles. Certain drawings related to specific works are shown with them. The majority, however, are exhibited in the Paul J. Sachs Gallery on the third floor of the Museum, where a number of notebook pages (uncatalogued), ranging in date from 1954 to 1969, are also shown unmounted in cases."

Magdalena Abakanowicz by Barbara Rose( Book )

12 editions published in 1994 in English and German and held by 931 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Magdalena Abakanowicz's sculpture is known and loved around the world. She is revered by artists and art critics for her uncompromising, individualistic vision, developed in her native Poland under the hostile eyes of the repressive Communist regime that was in power for most of her adult life. From the horrors of the Warsaw uprising in 1944 to the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968, she has personally witnessed the worst of humanity's instinct for destructive behavior, and has made art that unflinchingly presents the human condition. Abakanowicz was born to aristocratic parents in 1930 and raised on a country estate east of Warsaw. She came of age against the tumultuous background of World War II and its aftermath. By dint of enormous effort and struggle, she had, by the 1960s, gained the beginning of an international reputation as a sculptor in fibers, a weaver of room-filling environments that were called Abakans. Always alert to the possibilities of using familiar materials in unforeseen ways, she was soon using burlap and resin to make groups of figures that attracted widespread attention and evoked provocative cultural and political associations wherever they were shown. At the Venice biennial of 1980, her ambitious exhibition in the Polish pavilion caused a sensation among critics and the general public alike. Since then, the level and variety of her work has been nothing short of astonishing. In the 1980s, she began to create powerful and monumental sculptures in bronze, stone, wood, and iron. With works such as Katarsis, Incarnations, and Hand-like Trees, she has transformed bronze casting as she once revolutionized the placid world of weaving. Abakanowicz has also executed important public commissions for large, outdoor sculptures in Europe, North America, Asia, and the Middle East; envisioned a revolutionary new form of architecture; created a cycle of sculptures called War Games that is at once heroic and tragic; and produced figures of youthful circus acrobats that express life's hopes

Larry Rivers : art and the artist by Larry Rivers( Book )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Artist Larry Rivers has shocked, scandalized, and intrigued audiences for close to fifty years. Rivers emerged as a pop art pioneer in the 1950s and later became one of America's most important figurative painters. Ever the iconoclast, Rivers is a multimedia artist, working in painting, sculpture, collage, and installation pieces. His eclectic style draws from a surprising range of sources - from historic events like Washington crossing the Delaware, the Russian Revolution, and the Holocaust to Hollywood movies. He courted controversy, as in his shrewd satire of Manet's luscious nude Olympia, painted in blackface. Rivers worked abroad, linking the art worlds of Paris and New York; he became notorious not only for his work, but for his provocative lifestyle. He moves fluidly outside the traditional art world, accomplished as a jazz musician, writer, and filmmaker. At age seventy-eight Rivers has never had a complete retrospective of his work. Now the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., brings his legacy to light in this definitive Rivers monograph."--Jacket
